Starbucks began selling "#Unicorn Frappuccino" for a short period at participating stores across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The #beverage will be available from April 19 to April 23. Before the product was available at #starbucks, people on social media were already spreading the news that it was coming. Since Wednesday, many people have tried it, and they are loving the beautiful and tasty treat.
It is too bad this item is available only for a limited time.
About 'Unicorn Frappuccino'
The beverage is very unique. Admittedly, the "Unicorn Frappuccino" is extremely colorful. What makes it so colorful is that it is made with a mango syrup base, a sour blue drizzle, and it has vanilla whipped cream on top along with a sweet pink and sour blue powder. Those who have had the beverage said it looks like cotton candy and admitted that it looks better than it tastes. They said the drink is sweet and sour at the same time.
Mike Fahey's wife has worked at Starbucks over ten years. When she brought one home to him, Mike expected the drink to taste like it looks. He said the mango-based drink has toppings that are actually sour candy, and the blue wave is a sugary syrup. Other ingredients include ice and milk.
Drink changes color and flavor
According to Starbucks, the drink changes colors and flavors as it is stirred or sipped. In other words, by the time you get to the bottom of the frappuccino, the taste will be different from what it tasted like when you first started drinking it. The color goes from purple with swirls of blue and then changes to pink. The flavor changes from sweet and fruity to tangy and tart.
Expert food critics agreed that the flavor is similar to an orange creamsicle with a little tanginess. The beverage will be good for people who love sour drinks. It won't be good for people who watch their calorie intake because the 16-ounce cup contains 410 calories, 18 grams of fat, 59 grams of sugar and 230 milligrams of sodium.
Whether you love or hate Starbucks' latest development, it will not be around long enough for you to get used to it. If you have been on social media for the last few days, surely you have seen the photos. The hosts on the talk shows have also been sampling the beverage and giving their comments on the air. Many of them were willing to taste it, but they didn't drink much before they put the cup down. A comment on Twitter concluded that the drink would be good for any kid who loves sour candy and has underdeveloped taste buds.
